"just a little bit longer…"

“please, please, just a little bit more.” anyone remember the movie “dirty dancing”? how could you forget it if you ever saw it, seriously. and how sad about patrick swayze. but really, this post is not about all this, i just tend to think of post titles with song lines in them.

i’m talking about my blog roll, or my google reader list that is getting oh so long. and i am way backed up with reading it, too. i think i have nearly 800 posts to catch up on. and let me tell you, that ain’t happenin’. but i keep stumbling upon more and more fabulous blogs! i find them random searches, to blog hopping, to reader recommendations. so this week has been a little out of control, but i thought i’d let you in on a few of my newest reads:

my mama made it

just a girl

blonde designs blog

the lettered cottage

100 layer cake

ok, no more for now. this post took me well over an hour to write because i had to look over every blog i recommended to you! seriously, they are amazing, so get ready to not only waste precious time neither of us have, but to be ridiculously inspired. you’re welcome.

    i hear you. i feel like i'm constantly drowning in my google reader, but don't want to miss a beat with all of the creative inspiration. if you find a way to balance it all, please, please, let me know! :)

    totally know what you mean! the other day i was (1000+) behind. it doesn't count past 1000! so you know what? i just deleted them all. and it felt good. so now as new ones pop up, i sort of "weed" through them and keep the good ones. ;) thanks for the new inspiration! that's ALL i need! LOL

    i am in the same boat! i don't know how i have found so many wonderful blogs to read. there are days when i have not gotten into my google reader and i just have to mark them all as read. i have loved the option of tags, so that helps me weed out a lot and i have my favorites that i read everyday.

    thanks for the new ones you listed…a few i already read.
